COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew our beer in New York, about halfway between the hop fields of the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields of Kent, England. So we use earthy English hops to build the foundation and bright citrusy American hops to bring the noise in the rambunctious IPA we call BLAST! British Maris Otter and German Pilsner malts lends solidity, balance and bready flavors to brace up a beer that’s beautifully hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. Minerally hop bitterness is followed by a shock wave of flavor and aroma. You won’t even know what hit you.

Malts: Scottish Floor-malted Maris Otter, German Pilsner Malt

Hops: Willamette, Magnum, Cascade, Fuggle, Aurora, Zythos, Bravo, Simcoe, Sorachi Ace, Amarillo, Experiment 6300

On draft (in a plastic cup!) at the brewery. Pours an orange amber with average off white head. Nose is pineapple, grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Taste is grapefruit, mandarin orange, pineapple with a little pine. Moderate bitterness. I was not expecting much and was really pleasantly surprised by this. Very fresh.

Block (1637) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2014
A nice gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, bitter, slightly floral. Flavor is robust with a great hop flavor followed by a sweet and malty finish. The alcohol is masked extremely well and this beer is very sessionable.

Best by July 2014.
Appearance: The body is a vibrantly hued orange with perfect clarity. Perched on top is a creamy off-white head that has great retention.
Aroma: The aroma is strong of citrus, but overly harsh in a way. There’s definitely an astringent quality to this. I also get a sort of marijuana presence.
Taste: The hops are very prominent showing a lot of citrus from bitter orange to candied orange. The malts are slightly prominent, giving a light sweetness to somewhat balance the bitterness. The finish lingers with some hop bitterness and a slight booziness.
Palate: Medium bodied with sharp carbonation.
Overall: I find myself enjoying Blast, but not being impressed with it. It’s a good beer, without a doubt, but it has a very simple hop character that I find is used in so many other beers that it’s hard to get excited about nowadays.
